Not sure when the photos will start coming in, but I thought I'd open up this thread for all the Comic-Com related stuff.  See ya soon.

Well, I just got done going through the pictures here and at GH.  Man, that's a lot of stuff, and it wasn't all that's there.  Here are my tired ramblings:

- I'm not sure how I feel about the prequel tins.  Each has something new and cool (the clonetroopers and the astromech) and good rereleases (Evolutions anybody), but they also tend to have old things I don't want (Mace, Jango).  The tins themselves help to justify the price a bit, but it's hard to decide whether the things I want in these make them worth buying.  Maybe I'll just save up or something.  Looking forward to seeing the OT sets.

- Galatic Heroes are doing large sets of figures now.  That's pretty cool.  I think I'll be sticking to a pair here and there, though, which has amassed me quite a collection already.

- Titanium is getting to be quite a big line.  Tons of repaints on the vehicles (Naboo fighter, ARC fighter) and some surprising new ones (Padme's silver thing, the Ewok on speederbike).  It's tempting to get into them, but I think I'll try to stick with regular figures, as there are plenty of those already.  As for the Titanium figures, I've never been impressed by them, but a couple of these look really good, especially C-3PO.  But to counter that we have things like Grievous, who is really unimpressive considering what they could have done (such as a better sculpt and more limbs).

Okay, I think that's all for now.  I'm sure there will be more to see soon, though...

Any guesses as to what this thing is...?  I guess it's just yet another Jedi Starfighter, now that I look at Kit's again.  Maybe Saesee's...?  Enough with the Starfighters already!!

Repainted Jedi Fighter Matt, check the tail fin there...  Definitely a repainted piece.

Yeah, you're right.  I was just re-editing my post above to reflect that.  I'm getting tired of the Starfighters now though...  Why keep it under wraps, as if it was going to be exciting, when there's already 3 other Jedi/Vader Starfighters on display there?  Ugh.  Yawn.

BTW, most of the Comic Con chat is probably going on under their respective threads, just in case you folks were wondering why there's not more discussion in this one...  ;)

Our Hasbro Page is chock full of goodies including a few early sneak peaks at the stuff Hasbro was gonna shock and awe us with.  Clicky the button for a look-see.

Matt, I agree...

It seems like they kept anything that early photos hadn't leaked yet, as their aces up their sleeves so to speak.  I'm not unfond of JSF's and the repaints kind of are cool (I love Vader's JSF).  Still, I like those because they're to-scale...  I know what I'm getting is something I already kind of dig.  I'm not even all that thrilled about that Infiltrator that's supposedly under the car cloth in our one shot...  (or so we're guessing) only because I'm sure it's gonna underwhelm me as much as votes did for a while at RS.  :P

Anyone know who these Imperial guys are in this shot, courtesy Rebelscum?



New Tarkin, mayhap?

Looks like a 4 pack of and does look like Tarkin, the other three I'll assume are Motti, Tagge and Piett (or maybe a rerelease of Piett, Ozzel and Veers)

Yeah, it does look like some sort of "officers pack", and I hope that it is.  Hopefully we'll be seeing an all-new Tarkin, or even a "kitbash" of sorts using the ROTS version.  It will be interesting to see what this is, and who is included.

The third-from-left guy looks to be the Episode III Tarkin.

Gonna be bad news, if they're using that sculpt for the Peter Cushing version. . .

The above pic has camo battledroids.  There is another pic elsehere that shows these and a camo Super battle droid (just out of the pic above). 

Whats the deal with the POTJ cardback in there?

I cant find the pic but one site had what appeared to be a few concept figs.  One looked like Grievous.  Link anyone?
